Floor by Floor Demolition

Options, Depending Upon Your Project…

High Reach Demolition allows us to reduce the risk of our operatives working at height and we recommend the use of our Ultra High Reach and High Reach Excavators as a most cost effective demolition method.

Attaching crackers, pulverisers, metal cutting shears, hydraulic or demolition breakers, grapples, grabs or re-handling buckets to these high reach excavators turns them into highly versatile pieces of equipment.

In certain circumstances though, the option to use High Reach Excavators to demolish high-rise structures is not feasible. When this occurs, perhaps due to environmental considerations or adjoining buildings, a ‘Top down, Floor-by-Floor’ demolition technique is employed.


Floor-by-floor deconstruction is a complex and technically challenging procedure that involves the highest degree of engineering investigation, structural testing and design throughout the planning and implementation stages.

One, two or even three tower cranes may be installed as necessary to lift excavators and equipment to and from the working floors and to assist in clearing skips and lowering structural elements to the ground.

Structural deflection testing of the floors will best determine the size, type and number of excavators that can be safely employed. The choice of attachments used will also vary depending upon the nature and design of the structure along with environmental constraints.

Throughout our demolition company, our engineers and demolition teams are highly skilled and experienced in all methods and techniques involved, ensuring your project is in safe hands from the embryonic stages to the day of completion and hand over.

Our offices in Essex and London give us easy access to central London demolition jobs and those further afield, with our Group offices in Canterbury, Birmingham, Bristol, Leicester and Newcastle providing nationwide coverage for our demolition services.
